YouTube star Marina Joyce will address why she went missing for nine days in a new video.

A few days ago, the charity Missing People released an appeal for the 22-year-old to get in touch amid claims she went missing from her home in Haringey, London on 31 July, but her boyfriend Brandon Mehmed has since posted on Instagram to say that “she is safe and well”.

The appeal is officially closed.

According to Mehmed, Joyce will “make a video soon explaining all of this” once the dust has settled following claims he had something to do with her disappearance.

“It became a bit too much what with everyone thinking I’m a suspect and all,” he wrote, adding: “I knew she was safe because I spoke to her 24/7 and I wasn’t withholding any information.”

He continued: “This hasn’t been an easy time for Marina and I hope you guys can respect her privacy for the next day or two until she releases a video to explain everything.”

Joyce is best known for posting beauty videos onto YouTube.

In 2016, fans were left convinced that she had signalled for help during a video titled “DATE OUTFIT IDEAS” after seemingly whispering “help me”. It also seemed like her arms were covered in bruises.

Following the release of the video, viewers began to analyse it for clues believing her to frightened of someone behind the camera.

It caused such a panic that Enfield Police visited her and assured fans that she was “safe and well”.

Joyce caused a stir weeks later after claiming she had discovered “secrets” about life after death, telling her followers: “I know that I can still contact humans during the afterlife

She explained to her fans that she wanted to create a shrine where she could draw, meditate and “find... extreme spiritual help and guidance”.
